Yeah, I bought it on a whim. I was never too interested in pistol caliber rifles. After a few rounds thru it I found out that it preferred 240’s or lighter. Of all things this one seems to like 240 grain Berry HP plated bullets, go figure. I never use those so it was just luck that somewhere along the line I had acquired a box. Must have been a while back, the price tag said $18.95.
A nice light gun for the truck, stainless and plastic, a definite short range rifle that sorely needs a trigger job. However it does hit with authority and may be a good hog gun. The bolt action won’t cause problems for me. Most of the other rifles I hunt with are bolts.
I need to do some more testing with various 296/H110 loads and lighter bullets. Maybe I’ll come up with a better load.
